Cthulhu, Tentacles and Porn
I’ve always found that some of the sexiest things are the weird ones. Lately I’ve been reading some HP Lovecraft, drowning myself in the murky waters of his prose. I admit that I don’t read often enough for an author, but I do enjoy Lovecraft.
I’ve written a few stories about Cthulhu rising and taking a girl as his sexy toy. They may not have been my best stories, but they’re some of my favorites. And I’m sure you can all guess that I’m quite fond of some tentacle play in my fiction, since I’ve also written a few stories about Slenderman and his tentacles.
Still, given that I really do need to read more, and I especially should be reading more erotica, I thought I would poke my head around Amazon and try to find some weird horror and even weirder erotica to read.
So, here you have it! My Lovecraftian To Be Read Pile:
Professor Jillian Miskans has been studying a fragment of an ancient manuscript. Her work on it is so all-consuming that she has even begun to dream of it. A colleague continues to frantically insist that the manuscript is dangerous and that it, and all copies of it, should be destroyed immediately.
Professor Miskans decides to demonstrate to her colleague that the ritual is bunk by performing it. She hopes to dispel her dreams of it at the same time. Little does she know that she is in for a life (and body) changing experience.
This Lovecraftian erotic novelette has a word count of 10,500+
Mental patient Jane Dee has a secret. As a descendant of both occultist John Dee and the Yellow King himself, the blood flowing through her veins is dangerous and must be kept hidden. Arthur “Dex” Wakeley, her high priest, lover, and psychologist, has finally found a way to silence the sorcerers keeping the Elder Gods at bay, protecting her from the blood in her veins and ushering in a new destiny…if he is who he says he is.
Cthulhu fans looking for a some heat with their be-tentacled gods…this series of novellas is for you.

“From the wells of night to the gulfs of space, ever praise and abundance to the Black Goat of the Woods. Iä! Shub-Niggurath! The Goat with a Thousand Young!”
With this prayer in the ‘The Whisperer In Darkness’, Lovecraft introduced the world to the mighty and terrible Shub-Niggurath, the fertility deity of his then-fledgling Cthulhu Mythos. A being of primal lusts, overwhelming fecundity, and soul-blasting horror, the Black Goat is regularly invoked, entreated, and mentioned in furtive whispers within the pages of most Mythos fiction. And yet, for all that she is a cornerstone of the Mythos, readers encounter her rarely.
Now, with ‘Conqueror Womb: Lusty Tales of Shub-Niggurath’, Martian Migraine Press and editors Justine Geoffrey and Scott R Jones bring you 18 pulpy tales of fertility and fear, hot sex and chilling sacrifice! Stories that squelch, tales that both titillate and terrify, from some of the best writers working in Lovecraftian horror and mind-bending erotica today: Wilum H. Pugmire, Molly Tanzer, Don Webb, Christine Morgan, Kenton Hall, Brian M. Sammons, Jacqueline Sweet, Copper Sloane Levy, Annabeth Leong, and Christopher Slatsky, along with fresh new voices.
From nighted glades where frenzied orgiasts work unholy magic to slick urban dungeons of unbridled pleasure; from fertility clinics to fevered dance clubs; from the misty depths of the past to the unthinkable future, join us as we offer praise and abundance! Iä! Shub-Niggurath!
